your local fabric store and purchase some yardage of black/white
checkered material. This looks great as a table cloth, napkins
or simply as swags around the party area. If you are handy
with a sewing machine, you can make simple finish flags out
of it for decorating all over the party area or just around
a big sign saying PIT STOP around the food!
Organize all different sorts of races for interim activities
(running, obstacle courses, even EATING races!
a fun activity for the children, provide each child with a
box and have them decorate each like a racecar! Provide them
with markers, construction paper and crayons. If you are ambitious
enough, you can paint each box first bold, bright colors so
that they can get a head start on their decorating! These
are also fun for the children to eat in!
THROW AWAY THE PARTY DECORATIONS! - Save money and do something
your guests will LOVE! GIVE AWAY your party decorations! Use
Nascar posters (see below for inexpensive resources) to hang
around your party area. Allow the winners of different games
to choose which poster they'll get to walk away with at the
conclusion to the party! Combine decorations with party prizes!
Posters! - Great party decorations!
